Village Voice's Description
The Living Room's bartender describes their clientele as "low-key" before explaining that Keane dropped by for a secret performance earlier that week; a month prior, Justin Timberlake stopped in for singer-songwriter Matt Morris's set. This sort of thing just happens around here, at an L.E.S. mainstay as casual as the name implies. Here, you'll find two acoustic performance areas: the back space (a cafe-table-cluttered dwelling of faded browns, oranges, and maroons) and Googie's Lounge (a tiny, milky-blue room with a white grand piano at its center). Both contain aspiring Norah Joneses.
Tips from foursquare
Great live music and an amazingly chill vibe, this lower east side hot spot is the place to go for both having a casual drink with friends or listening to local and visiting talented music. - Whitney
Best door guy EVER!
A great place to catch some live talents performing. It has an great vibe and atmosphere that is heightened by the acoustic performances given there every night.
Family Records artist Lacrymosa did her first residency here. Say hello to the sound guy Eric and take some photo booth pictures. Memories!
